The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has arrested a gang of two females – Joseph Joy Adama and Vandora Davies Oreoluwa Favour – for robbery and murder of a prominent Kwara socialite, Adeniyi Ojo.
The Force PRO, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, while parading the suspects in Abuja, said on October 6, 2023, Police operatives apprehended the two suspects, Adama and Favour, who are both students of Kwara State Polytechnic for their involvement in the robbery and murder of Mr. Adeniyi Ojo, the son of Chief Emmanuel Ojo, a prominent figure in Ilorin, Kwara State.
“Through meticulous investigative work, our officers were able to track and apprehend these suspects in Mowe Ibafo, Ogun State.
“In a tragic incident, the duo tied the deceased under the guise of having a sex rump and demanded money from him. But when he was not forthcoming, they resorted to drugging and suffocating him, leading to his untimely demise,” the Force PRO stated.
While speaking to journalists, one of the suspects, Adama said she had been in sexual relationship with the deceased and on that day, they went with the intention to steal from him but when he wasn’t succumbing, they drugged him and left with his phone and other valuables only to discover that he had died later.
RoyalTimes further stated that the police spokesperson said other notable arrests included those of suspected kidnappers involved in a Swiss national’s abduction.
